Augmented Meshes - HELP!

Okay. I have a mesh in a roughly cubical shape. However, there are angled surfaces that tanks cannot drive on. I was wondering if I could do something like what was done in the highway map I saw: another mesh (or in my case boxes, possibly) roughly following the shape of the first object, but is inv...

No. It's quite different in look, but similar in layout.

Quadrants - Another 4-team CTF

This map, up and running at bztraining.org:4226 , is similar in layout to Earthbound except for a few things: 1) Jumping is allowed. 2) There are no teleporters. 3) SH is the only superflag available. 4) The bases are at the back corners and protected, as opposed to in the front corners and open.

Re: The perfect map.

In my opinion, a good map works with default or nearly default settings. GM turn angle should definitely not be increased, nor should tank speed. Personally I enjoy ricochet and few flags, and no jumping.

Re: Earthbound - a 4-team CTF

It wouldn't really add too much to the game, just make it even harder to capture the flag - which is already difficult for most.

Re: Earthbound - a 4-team CTF

A. The teleporters are designed as they are to ensure accuracy when firing through them.
B. The map is intended for skill, not for flags that give easy "ownage".
C. The two portals allowing access to the victim team's quadrant are covered by a half-size SW oncap.
D. Please clarify.

Earthbound - a 4-team CTF

This four-team CTF with no jumping promotes dodging skill and practice. There are no superflags. Each team uses teleporters to get past the walls, but they cannot go directly to the base diagonally across from them. They must come around through another team's base. Screens posted. Released into Pub...

Midpoint Operations - a Red versus Green CTF

First of all, I would like to thank the players and mrapple for putting up with my many test versions of this map. mrapple's nearly constant updating allowed my map to reach its best, and many players reported and commented on things I could improve. The result, you ask? It's ready! Midpoint Operati...

Announcing Running the Gauntlet by Anathema, Beta Version.

As far as rico opportunities, there are a few, and it's not meant to be a rico-heavy map. I tried to balance between n00bs and pros. So, there are some cons, but to less experie...
